88 Million Americans Not Working: Politicians Lie About the Numbers

NewsEmergency.com Critical News, Weather & Alerts

Laid off government workers, new graduates who can't find a job, older workers forced to retire early, people giving up job searches all together are all being hidden from the true unemployment situation in America.
 
U.S. business analysts say that Friday's weak employment report could push the country's central bank to adopt new measures next week to spur job growth and boost the sluggish economy.

The government reported that the American labor market added only 96,000 new jobs in August. 
 
While the jobless rate fell from 8.3 percent to 8.1 percent, that was largely because 368,000 unemployed workers abandoned their search for a job. 
 
The share of the workforce either actively looking for jobs or working is at its lowest level since September of 1981.  Only 63% of eligible Americans are working or 88 million not earning a paycheck.
 
As a result, they were not counted as part of the labor force and the declining unemployment rate. Making the reported unemployment number a farse. 

Economist Steve Fazzari at Washington University in St. Louis said the meager job growth coupled with the reason for the declining jobless rate make it more likely the Federal Reserve will act to cut key long-term interest rates, which already are very low.

"With this relatively weak report, and I think that's the way it's going to be interpreted, it makes it even more likely that the Fed will take some actions to lower long-term interest rates even further," said Fazzari.

Job growth has become a key point of contention in the close presidential election campaign between the Democratic incumbent, President Barack Obama, and his Republican challenger, Mitt Romney.  Fazzari said the lack of significant job growth is troubling.

"We're still stagnating," he said. "We're not creating enough jobs in the economy to even keep up with population growth.  So, yes, we are growing, rather than shrinking.  So that's a positive and that's certainly what the Obama campaign's going to emphasize.  But we're not really doing any kind of catch-up.  We lost so many jobs in 2008 and 2009, and we're just rumbling along the bottom, as far I'm concerned."

Another analyst, finance professor Rebel Cole at DePaul University in Chicago, emphasized that the drop in the unemployment rate is misleading.

"Unfortunately, most people are going to focus on the drop in the unemployment rate from 8.3 percent to 8.1 percent," said Cole. "And that's unfortunate, because it's badly misleading.  The unemployment rate fell because over 350,000 people dropped out of the labor force.  In other words, the situation is so bad that workers are simply giving up and leaving the labor force.  Since last year at this time, about 2.7 million workers have lost faith and left the labor force.  So that has masked the true unemployment rate, which would be closer to double digits were those people still counted."

Cole said he is not sure that the Federal Reserve will adopt new policies next week, but said that with the poor employment report, the "probability just went way up."

Cole said the central bank has signaled that it might purchase mortgage-backed securities in an attempt to cut already-low interest rates on home purchase loans.  But Cole said he does not see the connection between housing loan interest rates and the creation of more jobs.

"The problem with that is that I don't think that mortgage rates are too high," he said. "I don't see how that's really going to help the job market.  Most people who can refinance have refinanced."

Heat or Ice? Which is Best for Back Pain

Most medical experts agree that heat is superior to ice when it comes to easing back pain especially pain in the lower back.

Cold is good to reduce swelling and inflammation, either from a surgical wound, an injury or osteoarthritis.

To Use Heat:

Apply moist heat to the back in 15 to 20 minute sessions. Moist heat is more effective than dry heat and can be had through hot packs, showers or hot baths.
